Ricotta pedas

A simple yet satisfying peda recipe.



6 cardamom pods
8 saffron strands
12 pistachios + another 12 broken up for garnish
400g vegan ricotta cheese
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/3 C sugar (I used turbinado/brown sugar)
1/2 C half-and-half (you can use whole almond milk instead)
3/4 C almond milk powder
Grind first three ingredients with a mortar and pestle and keep aside. Heat ghee in a thick bottomed wok, add ricotta cheese and stir constantly until it thickens and forms a ball. Add milk, sugar and almond milk powder and and the ground mixture. Add more oil if desired. Continue stirring at low flame until the mixture becomes the consistency of a soft peda. Allow it to cool and form into pedas and top with crushed pistachio.

My condition was progressively deteriorating over the past 2 years. I’d been good at taking my medicine and exercising so knew I should have felt better. My arthritis and scleroderma were really affecting my quality of life. Increasing pain and fatigue were wearing me down.

Dr. Jenny and Ajoy came well-recommended so I got in touch. I completed a short questionnaire before my consultation. Covid meant it was all done over VC. They put me at ease, and it was like we were in the same room. They asked all the right medical and lifestyle questions without judgement. They devised a plan which was holistic, realistic and easy to follow. Their gentle and knowledgeable coaching kept me on track.

The resulting decrease in swelling and pain has given me a new lease of life in a few weeks. I feel so much better and look so much happier. I felt they were genuinely interested in my well-being. Happy to highly recommend them.
